Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our mission compels us to identify and eliminate barriers that have prevented the full participation and advancement of all citizens, particularly Black, Brown, Indigenous and other persons of color as well as women. The work we do is inherently rooted in diversity, equity and inclusion.

  • We condemn any act of racism or discrimination.  

  • We stand for safety, health, dignity, inclusion and equitable opportunity for all. 

  • We advocate for youth and encourage young people to embrace the power of their voice.  

  • We work to develop a diverse organizational community where all staff members receive equitable respect and opportunity for growth and professional development.
